The story of NIIT began in 1981 when three IIT graduates got together to do
something innovative. The trio founded NIIT with an objective to optimise on the
opportunity of booming IT education and training in India. Since its inception,
NIIT has always evangelised the gospel of technology and endeavoured to create
an IT enabled society. Through a franchise model, it first began imparting
IT education and opened centres across every nook and corner of the country.
